aud still targets .5920 and then .6000 (see below)...vol studies on daily show move has much more room to run......5680 should be strong support on any pullbacks
NC JJM 13:40 GMT January 7, 2003
aud looks like it may just be beggining its break-out.....long here (.5745) and will buy more near .5700 with s/l below .5680....... 58 cents is strong resitance but once broken think .5920 and then .6000 will be seen shortly thereafter...

Congrats the forum's biggest Euro bull
Agree coming close to the noted target but for me 10 ticks lower
Tallinn viies 23:41 GMT January 12, 2003
new week again, but story will be the same - pressure to buy the euro! we are nearing with the full speer to the levels (WALL if I may say so) which are very very important on the longer term charts. check it out
suggesting to all of you to play on the long side as long as low from the day before not penetrated. target 1,0650 and if everything turns out as good as until now we may see even 1,0800
there is room for 300 points correction, stay ready for that.
I guess first possible level to add long positions is 1,0525 area.

The data from Friday was bad enough to push EURUSD higher. It probably explained why the unexpected strong move from 1.0360/65 to 1.0535. This make me to believe that someone has got that info before the official announcement. The range is over now. EURUSD should on its way to finish the rest of its uptrend now. 1.0500-1.0550 should offer good support for now On the top range, watchout 1.0640-1.0690. This is the new forecast.
EURJPY should test the resistance line at 126.60/65.
GBPUSD didn't make new high on Friday. This is interesting. It's very likely GBPUSD has reached a short term top. EURGBP should head up to 0.6620-50.
USDCHF will only see support ahead of 1.3717-35.
USDCAD should break 1.5000 eventually and target 1.4200 in a bog picture.

sarasota jf: Your view is backed up by my oda book this morn. Expected to see large stops sub 118.70 this morn, but instead I have bids in very good size from 118.90 all the way down to 117.80. The real serious ones are at 118.30-35.

asia monday-tokyo out
euro looks likely to keep moving higher with dips limited to 1.0530-40 and topside first target 1.0652.... for asia/london/nymonday
gbp is the clearest trade this market is basically a weak market being dragged along by the euro- I think this will be a great market to short upon a move above 1.6162 - so in the window of 1.6162/1.6225 this market will turn down to 1.5700-1.5800
yen - yen is bid 118.50 and offered 120 - the buyers are longer term guys seeing this as the opportunity of a lifetime as they expect 140-150 into nov/dec this year. not only that they are happy to buy yards and yards of usd. added to that is there is absolutely no yen positive news its just pure usd weakness and safe haven flows at the moment. loads of option stops around the 118 level keeping short term specs selling. so what to expect for monday globally - 119.00-119.65 - maybe firmness in us stocks gives us a little pop up to 65 and euryen buying from topside breakout supports usdyen at the moment.
my positions are just 2 today long eur n gbp/ and gbp i cant wait for the one last rally to get a great short position established.. gl

Fwiw my system shows that Cable is ready to make a good move today.
Would like to see a good break above the 1.6104 level which may lead to a test of last weeks high of the 1.6160 area.
A break below 1.6076 may lead to a test of 1.6025/40 area with very good support seen below that at 1.5964
My daily pivot point is at 1.6090 and my weekly pivot at 1.6101
As usual expect very little action till London with Japan on holidays today.
These levels are all bid prices and are JMVHO....gt

I have been trading for 10 years and still learning, this site is the only one on the web traders can relate to with ease of access.
Trading fundamentals, I find that the technical traders on here compliment my own views enabling me to trade with profits. Its not a matter of a free ride - this is all the TV station such as CNBC Bloomsberg and the like portray, they put on their view of the markets and its up to the viewer . FX is a risky and more or less exclusive form of trading fast a furious ,having Global-View is priceless. Any recommendations on here especially by some of the more talented technical traders is a godsend , but as Sparker says one must do their own homework otherwise , you may as well take a trip to the casino. One more thing FX is a 24hrs 5-6 day a week job make no mistake. JIMHO
melb th 20:36 GMT January 12, 2003
Sparker and RSA// Agree with both of you. Forum is of better use if you already have a clear idea of what is likely from your own analysis. If I follow even the best forum recommendations without doing my own analysis (preferably first) then I usually get burnt, because I have no idea of timing, stops, limits and false or tenporary dips etc. Sometimes people may make a recommendation to improve their own entry position. If you cant see this is likely when you read a comment then much more practice and work is needed.
There is a difference between sharing ideas on market trends or intelligence and market tips.
CA Patty 20:33 GMT January 12, 2003
I am not new to this business (12 years full time), but new to this forum, can you single out couple of gurus on this forum for me if anyone has been here long enough to know the names/handles?
RSA abk 20:25 GMT January 12, 2003
Sparker, thanks for your reaction, but on the other hand this forum is only of value if there is an exchange of ideas. Newbies and rookies can only learn by analyzing the guru`s viewpoints and trying to see how he has reached a certain conclusion or recommendation. I dont think anyone wants a "free ride" and most are very keen to learn from the experienced traders of which we have quite a few here, i`m grateful to say. I for one have learned more from them over the past months than I believed possible and thank them for their contributions to make this forum the best on the web. They know who they are. GL GT

HK AB, good stuffs from Shanghia bc.
Shanghai bc 02:14 GMT July 1, 2001
First, start with 20 day MA line¡¦s directional tendency, up down and sideways and decide where the market bias is at present. I explained in Help Forum before how some Yen position players use 20 day MA line in their decision making process. So, I will try in more detail how they "fine tune" their decision making process using 4 hour chart in real situation. Assuming 20 day MA is down, they will use any up stick near and around 20 day MA as a chance to short again and again until 4 hour chart shows divergence in MACD, meaning some players are taking profits and reversing their position in market flow situation. There are two ways of handling the situation, one is, if an up-signal appears in "daily candle stick chart" after 4 hour showing MACD divergence, that is usually the start of a new-mini trend but if you are more cautious person, you can wait for 4 hour chart¡¦s 20 MA crosses 50 MA to initiate your new position and sit on it. Assuming 20 day MA changes to up direction after the above in 4 hour chart change, then buy any downtick near and around 20 day MA again and again accumulating all the way until the opposite happens in 4 hour chart, i.e. MACD showing divergence and down sign in daily candle stick and 4 hour chart¡¦s 20 MA crosses 50 MA. Then reverse your position and start it in the opposite direction and sell any up stick to near and around 20 day MA again.
If you are a more nimble trader, you can use 1 hour chart using the same technique .i.e MACD divergence and 20 MA crossing 50 MA in 1 hour chart to initiate new positions, using 4 hour chart as your main directional moves similar to using daily and 4 hour chart together above. In this case using 20 MA directional bias in 4 hour chart as your main market bias like 20 day MA in daily chart. If you are a more nimble one, you can use 10 mini chart, i.e. using MACD divergence and 20 MA crossing 50 MA, using 1 hour chart as your main directional bias, again using 20 MA in 1 hour chart¡¦s direction as your market bias ..Money management must be more nimble as well if you are using these short-term charts.
Shanghai bc 01:53 GMT June 30, 2001
The easiest but still very effective way of finding the window of opportunity for entry and exit for scalpers or short-term position traders is find out a "divergence signal in MACD" in 10 min or 1 hour or 4 hour charts depending on a trader¡¦s trading time horizon and when 20 MA crosses 50 MA backed up by the MACD divergence signal, open the trade and sit on it and reverse the trade when the opposite signal appears, i.e. MACD divergence signal and 20 MA cross over 50 MA in the particular chart a trader is using, and sit on it and reverse again when the opposite signal appears.

I am looking for a site where you can find plenty of informations if you have to invest in bonds. I mean you can decide currency, time, coupon and rating. It's not important the real time price ( can be delayed ) but have a good choice for title in different currencies. tks in advance to everybody for help

The odds have gone down for war
Allies Slow U.S. War Plans
British and French Urge Time for Inspectors; Turkey Delays on Troops By Michael Dobbs
Washington Post Staff Writer
Over the past week, key U.S. allies have sent an unambiguous message to the Bush administration to give United Nations weapons inspectors in Iraq time to complete their work, even if it means delaying the onset of hostilities.
The allied opposition to an early war with Iraq has strengthened the hand of moderates in the administration who have been arguing against setting a firm deadline for Iraqi President Saddam Hussein to comply with demands for giving up his weapons of mass destruction, according to U.S. officials and allied diplomats. According to these sources, the odds of a February war appear to be receding, barring a major Iraqi misstep that would galvanize Western governments and public opinion. "The odds have gone down for war," said a well-placed U.S. official. Washintonpost.com
